Missouri's Minimum Wage Increased on Jan. 1


Missouri's minimum wage increased on Jan. 1 as part of a 2018 voter-approved plan to gradually increase wages for some of the state's lowest-paid hourly workers. The state's minimum wage rate increased from $8.60 to a mandated rate of $9.45 an hour. The plan requires wages to go up by 85 cents an hour every year until the minimum wage rate hits $12 an hour in 2023. 

New minimum wage requirements took effect in 20 states and nearly two dozen cities at the start of 2020, affecting millions of workers.
